I just noticed on eBay that there are several clear corner lights available for around $35. What are these and why so cheap?

If I look at various vendors here, it looks like they have them for $100 bucks or so. So does anyone know why the price difference. Are they real cheap knockoffs or something.

One of my stock corner lights has a big crack in it and I'm looking to replace it and figured "Why not go to clear corners?"

Thanks for the input.

edit:

I also notice several of the clear side lamps on eBay as well, real cheap. Where as they're $60-80 else where.

I know what you are talking about, and I actually got a set similar to those not long ago. They are not exact matches, but they work. They are not as expensive because they are not originals; they are knock-offs. I had to modify mine a little bit to make them fit right, but it was nothing major. The little round piece on the corner light that sticks out right by the fender wasn't long enough on mine, but I was able to make them fit by modifying some electrical connectors and shoving them in the opening in that round part. I really don't forsee any problems with them, but maybe someone has something else to add?

I purchased mine at a Subaru parts counter, got both for like $55 or so (as an employee), so maybe try to find someone near you who works at a dealership that can hook you up. I just prefer OEM parts, although it's not always possible (like clear sidemarkers).

I agree with Jamie on most things but as far as corner lights i don't see knockoffs hurting anything as long as they fit.

now where are the clear corners on www.allsubaru.com? i can't find them. They have the bumper lights and side indicators but no clear corner signals. ?? maybe i'm missing something but i did a site search with google and with their system and came up with nothing but ^^ those or bug-eye parts.

thanks..

Uhhh, yeah. I got the procarparts lights too. I have heard some nasty things about that place, and its customer service, but I got the lights anyways because I just wanted a good price overall, and I had heard the quality was just fine. It is that. They are a pretty simple part, so there isn't much too it. They look and fit and work good. Put some nicer bulbs in them though.
